in connecticut, you're still going to need the house judiciary committee to sign off on it. that's the reality. >> mark, how long does he have the gavel if he's as, you know, "the washington post" suggests today he might be the weakest speaker in modern american history. and then he decides to roll his own conference and do a bill that more democrats are going to support than republicans. that's not a great plan to bring down to hc5 when you caucus together, trying to pick the next speaker for the republican party. >> it's not. i don't think he's looking forward -- they're doing a signing ceremony in the rose garden standing with the president. but remember, big business wants a deal. a lot of people -- a lot of taxpayers, when they see what's going to happen in january, are going to want a deal. speaker boehner's going to have to do something that almost no republican leader has done in the last couple years, which is to say my party is going to have to understand that this is a more centrist country than their views. we need a deal. and he's going to have to do it. i don't see any other alte

will be senator blumenthal from connecticut. we are so delighted that you could be here. go right ahead. >> thank you very much. i want to thank you and ranking member and half for today's hearing. my colleagues to have stated so eloquently what happened in new york and new jersey, connecticut , share their faith although the lack -- national media coverage may give the impression that connecticut's damage was more a footnote to the main story. in fact, the destruction and damage in connecticut was every bit as real, and the pockets of destruction as pervasive as elsewhere, and i think many of the lessons learned the you heard here form a pattern that we need to invest now or pay later. there are measures that we can take now to minimize the damage in the future, and we cannot be penny wise to avoid those measures going forward, and the other lesson that i think it's striking here is that our efforts have to be complementary, not competitive. we are mutually supportive in this effort. i have been asked repeatedly, argue in competition with new jersey and new york? the answer is emphatically now.
